I have done many hog roasts in my time, but last Thursday’s catering event over in Liverpool has to be one of the most memorable. Unfortunately my ears haven’t quite forgiven the event. Not a burst ear drum but something close.
We set up the pig roast in a large bar near Everton.
Because of the limited space to cook the pig we cooked it off site and then drove the hog roast van over to Liverpool to serve it. We rarely do this but because the pig will actually increase in temperature after it is cooked for x amount of time it can have up to an hour to rest and then ready to serve.
Anyway, the kids loved the pig. Lots of girls screaming at the beast, others refused to look at it and some wanting pictures kissing it. This was the most famous pig since babe. We cooked a 45 kilo hog for the event which feeds up to 100 people.
We also cooked new potatoes, spicy coleslaw and salad including beef tomatoes served with a beautiful Sicilian olive oil. The event was a big success and we were promised a repeat booking for next year at a christening.
Maybe we might have our most famous lamb!
